This Christmas season is rather different from any before it. The critical mass on your planet has reached a level that has been unprecedented over many thousands of years of your civilizations on Planet Gaia, Mother Earth. You are very much aware that Christmas is not about Santa Claus, a snowman and sleigh rides, and not even about the birth of a baby over two thousand years ago. You are aware enough to know that the ancients celebrated the Winter Solstice as a time of the renewal of the light and the changes of the seasons marked by the points in Heaven that affect your planet’s journey through the stars and galaxies, and specifically its orbit around the sun; The time of shortest day and longest night and the beginning of Winter in the Northern Hemisphere.
Most of you are also aware that this day of Christmas is also not about the birth of a baby called Jesus and that this date was assigned to his birth much later by a corrupt church/governmental energy of control, seeking to absorb and take over the power behind these ancient festivals of the Earth Mother and the seasons that were recognized and honored by all peoples throughout time. You have a sense that this is about the birth of the light, the observance of gathering to bring light to the darkest moment of the year through lighting candles, fires, music making, ceremony and prayer.
And yet you are also aware that there is something about the Christ figure that is pivotal in all this even if you have little relationship to the one Jesus and consider him a figure of worship for Christianity and not much else that affects you personally. So I would like to offer you an understanding that applies, whether you are Christian, Jew, Moslem, Zen, Buddhist or whatever your path, because the pivotal aspect of this season goes beyond the mind and the old dogmas of the ages, beyond control and gift giving.
The one called Jesus, Joshua, Jes(h)u, Jehoshuah, Jesse or Isaiah or any of the versions of a name derived from the Hebrew root YShU, which means to “save” has been here before in many guises throughout time and space in this dimension. The spiritual reality and Presence of this being came to this planet to save those who had become trapped in the density of the physical plane, in flesh and blood, in the pleasures and experience of being in physical form and then forgetting their divine source as aspects of God/ Goddess/Creator or whatever you wish to call the energy of Source. He brought with him many “Angels” and His and their Divine Consorts as they took on the Male and Female aspects of Humanity. This “Team” of Light Beings continues to work on behalf of Humanity and those trapped within the darkness of Density.
Over many incarnations This One came under different names as bringer of teachings, writing, agriculture, healing, magic and the Mysteries. He was known as Zoroastra, Thoth, Hermes, Osiris, The Yellow Emperor, Quetsalcoatl, and many, many other names, in his Masculine aspect as bringer of Light and Wisdom and a message of Love and Cooperation. There were also Feminine aspects of this Love and Light energies such as the Marys, the Quan Yin and the Goddess figures of herstory. It was always prophesied that he/she/they would return and bring an age of peace, a golden age back to a planet that has been ravaged by war, violence, hatred, cruelty and the density of separation.
The Christian church claims that this “Messiah” or Savior has already come in the form of Jesus, the “Christ” (anointed one). However, we have anything but peace, union, co-operation and love filling the annals of this planet at this time. The Jews are still waiting for the Messiah. New Age teachings say the Christ will come this time around, not in the form of one person, but rather that Christ Consciousness will be born in the hearts of the people and this is what makes this time different, and this is where the true salvation for Humanity will arise, in the heart. “New Age” philosophy may have its faults, but in this understanding of the Christ path, there is great wisdom.
However, what I would like to invite you to consider this Christmas Season and season of Light is what I am going to call the Human Jesus, the nature of the one who did show up at some point in “history”, however much the “story” has become distorted, such that so many versions of the “truth” are rampant. This one typing has even harbored much skepticism of the historical reality of such a man, in spite of his association with many practices, groups and understandings that refer to such a One.
There are those that have had recollections of lifetimes in the presence of this one, whom we will call Yeshu; Whether through hypnotic regression or shamanic journeys, dreams or simple reactivation of memory. The most remarkable aspects of these memories is the remembrance of the love, compassion and the “golden glow” that is associated with Him, His touch, His eyes and his bearing. He loved all equally, whether sinner or saint, crippled, leper or devoted disciple. The feeling that these people report is of such unconditional love and Presence that their lives were and are changed just by the memory and association.
So, if you are a skeptic or you are reaching for a greater meaning this year for your Holy Day experience, and there is something itching you to go deeper into the meaning of Christmas or the Festival of Lights or the Solstice and you want to feel something more than the glitz and glamor, meditate on this One and what it would be like to look into His eyes and feel that love, that glow and that remembrance of your own divine light as a child of God, as a son or daughter of the love of Creator, of Wakan Tanka, The Great Mystery. Feel what it would be like to be seen by the eyes of such compassion and love that accepts you totally, just as you are. Let that light shine in your own heart and begin to see yourself through those same eyes. Feel what forgiveness feels like to you, for you, and for others; How it might feel to recognize that all humans have their challenges, their flaws and their strengths, just like you and that all are worthy of the rekindling of that light that is the bottom line of all existence.
Whether you be alone or with family and friends this Holiday Season, may you receive the light of the great Beings of Light that love you and want you to experience the love of All That Is, for you are all expressions of this Reality.
I am Ashtara. I come from the Stars and I dwell in the heart of this one writing, as his Feminine aspect
